Capita Appointed by Montagu Evans as Defra Strategic Partner

29th September 2014

Capita’s property management team has been appointed by Montagu Evans as a strategic partner on its contract with Defra (Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs) for the management of Defra’s £3bn UK-wide commercial estate.

Earlier this year Defra awarded Montagu Evans a three-year contract for estates professional services covering its property portfolio. Montagu Evans’ strategic partnership with Capita will now see it essentially outsource the property management part of the Defra contract to Capita.

Defra is the UK government department responsible for policy and regulations on environmental, food and rural issues. Its UK estate consists of over 150 properties and is one of the largest public sector portfolios to be retendered in recent years. Supported by 37 agencies and public bodies, Defra’s priorities are to grow the rural economy, improve the environment and safeguard animal and plant health.
